Female celebrities are often known and celebrated for their hair. In fact, publishing companies often pay large sums of money to any photographer who can catch an early glimpse of a new celebrity hairstyle.
Although female celebrities are judged, promoted and branded by their appearance, hair loss is a condition that affects all types of people, including many of our leading ladies and other female celebrities. All of the following superstars have suffered from hair loss, yet still continue to shine with style and pizzazz, and have come through the grief and suffering of their hair loss condition with inspiring grace.
- Naomi Campbell
Supermodels don’t have hair loss, do they? Yes, they do. Naomi Campbell has suffered from the condition known as traction alopecia, which is a type of hair loss caused by excessive stress on the scalp. That scalp stress can be caused by stressful hairstyling practices, including some types of hair extensions.
- Christina Aguilera
Style-savvy celebrity superstar Christina Aguilera has also suffered from traction alopecia. Aguilera is especially known for her constantly evolving and inspiring personal style. Part of that ongoing transformation has involved many changes to her hair. Traction alopecia occurs over time as the scalp is exposed to stressful chemicals or excessive pulling or tugging on the hair and scalp during styling.
Sexy singing sensation Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas is another female celebrity who has suffered from traction alopecia.
- Farrah Fawcett
Model and actress Farrah Fawcett was renowned in the 70’s for her long and luxurious hair. She also suffered premature balding due to traction alopecia.
- Oprah Winfrey
Nothing says superstar and brand identity like the name Oprah Winfrey. Known as one of the wealthiest and most influential people in the world, Oprah has had more than her share of hair loss woes. She has suffered hair loss from traction alopecia and from the use of chemical hair straighteners and relaxers.
- Natalie Maines
Natalie Maines, a member of the Dixie Chicks, has also had hair loss during her pregnancy. Hair loss during pregnancy is caused by changes in hormones. Although all women experience hormonal changes during pregnancy, not all women experience hair loss.
- Geena Davis
Academy Award winner Geena Davis has also experienced hair loss during pregnancy. Hair loss caused by pregnancy can be especially distressing until the cause is verified. There is also the condition of hair loss called postpartum hair loss, where hair falls out after the baby is born. This is also a temporary condition, but it is important to have the cause verified by a professional.
